Richard Bolles and What Color Is Your Parachute? have been around so long that it’s easy to take them for granted. But make no mistake: With every new edition, Bolles faithfully and thoroughly updates and revises this informative and humane guide for job hunters and career changers.
Bolles also maintains an excellent website (link here). Even for those who do not own a copy of the book, it is a valuable stand alone portal to articles and links on the job search, networking, resume preparation, career counseling, and researching employers. For those in search of more personalized counseling, it also provides information about the 5-day workshops that Bolles hosts in his home.
Bolles goes beyond the world of job hunting in his blog, Dick Bolles’ Enchanted World (link here). It’s further evidence that he is not just another do-it-by-the-numbers career counselor. He understands the relationships between work, life, and the society we live in, and he’s not afraid to make his opinions known.
